Default Help with card message.

I know a couple that has had medical issues and a benefit to raise money for medical expenses was recently held for them. I wasn't able to attend, but would like to send a card with money. Should I mention the money in the card, something like, "I have included a little something that I hope will help etc.", or should I just write a nice note and not mention the money.

Should I address the card only to the wife who is sick, or both she and her husband. Thanks.

A nice note and no mention of the money. That's the way I would go. You know it's there and they will too.

It's probably already written by now, but just saying...I agree with all the others, no mention of $$....and addressed to both. Such things are mind bending to write, you want to be personal , even heartfelt...a personal touch is so beautiful...but you don't want to get too carried away either, it is such a hard time they are going through.
